Raksha Bandhan is a traditional festival that finds its roots in the Indian sub-continent. The festival marks the celebration of the bonding between sisters and brothers. Its also time for family celebrations, with grand festivities and food. It's family time!
Meaning of Raksha Bandhan
Raksha in Sanskrit means protection, and Bandhan means bond. So Raksha Bandhan signifies the celebration of a protective relationship that exists between the siblings.
Rakhi has both mythological and historical significance.
One of the greatest epics of all time and in all ages is Mahabharatha. The origin of the Rakhi celebration begins with the bond between Draupadi and Krishna. Raksha Bandhan is more than a celebration between siblings. It is a celebration of bonds between people who have brotherly and sisterly tendencies towards each other.
The occasion is the time to reinforce the sibling's bonds and love for each other. No matter the fights and differences of opinions, this is the festival that makes them set-aside everything and makes them get back together.
Raksha Bandhan Celebrations
On the day of the festival, all of them get up early and take a head bath, after which they perform Pooja as family. On completing the morning chores, sisters set the pooja thali containing camphor, roli, rice grains, rakhi, and sweets. Then, sister lights the camphor to perform aarti to her brother, after which she applies teeka with roli. On it, she sticks a few rice grains while praying for the longevity of her brother. Then she ties a rakhi on her brother's wrist and feeds him sweets, which convey that the relationship should be filled in with the sweet memories forever. After the ritual, both of them exchange gifts to mark the occasion. The siblings spend the rest of the day with their family recalling their childhood memories, and having fun with each other, thereby adding more memories to their collection.
